One of New Zealand’s most awesome native birds, the Kakariki (Cyanoramphus novaezelandiae). Taken at Rainbow Springs, Rotorua, New Zealand. While the Kakariki is quite rad, it is not quite as rad as the Tieke.
The thick sound of cicadas swamped us as we walked into the Buried Village. On the side of this 120-year-old poplar tree were tens and tens of cicada nymph shells bathed in light. The sound of cicadas is, in my mind, inexorably linked to summer: memories of bushwalks, relaxing in the sun, and BBQs.
